Top two PR execs exit CNN

by | Jun 9, 2023

It appears that Chris Licht isn’t the only high-level CNN staffer who is leaving the network, reports TVNewser.  According to CNN’s senior media reporter, the network’s top two PR executives are also out: CNN public relations chief and lead spokesperson Kris Coratti, shown above, and strategic/crisis communications lead Matt Dornic, who’s a longtime member of the network’s PR department.

The TVNewser post adds that  “Corrati led CNN’s brand strategy and teams, including media relations and publicity, creative marketing, events and brand initiatives—as well as employee and external communications. She was also involved with the greenlighting of the infamous Chris Licht profile in The Atlantic, a 15,000-word opus which published on Friday. The article ended up painting a very unflattering picture of Licht and his leadership at CNN, and was apparently the straw that broke the camel’s back in the eyes of Warner Bros. Discovery leadership.

“Corrati joined CNN 11 months ago after a number of years serving as The Washington Post’s communications chief and general manager of Washington Post Live.”
